Not current scenario, its always been that way. I've never heard of the deobands instigating people against the country. They were the ones to put out fatwas against going to Syria to fight for IS. Govt policy also helps. If the parents discover their sons have gone missing to alert the govt and they will get them back provided they have not committed any crimes. This has slowed recruitment a big deal. They're doing the same thing in J&K.Pls visit Deoband and if you manage to stay there for a night and able to hear their thoughts, decide yourself. They are no different than those in Pak and AF. They accept GOI as their leader b,cause they are sort of forced to in current scenario. Have u ever wondered why the shahi imam and his cahoots do not spew as much venom as they used to earlier.. Its the fear factor at work...r
Only moderate face they had was Vastanvi who was booted out for saying good things...rest theit fatwa;s are equally toxic if not less...mind you they claim to be the so called moderate face of peaceful religion
It's a bit odd for a centre right govt that is hard on terror to have such an ultra liberal policy but that is the reality. This is India, things do not always go in straight lines
How many Indian muslims have gone abroad to fight since Afghanistan in the 80s ? Chechnya ? Bosnia ? tell me.
Hardly any. That is the difference.
There are more from smaller countries when you compare for size of muslim population.
Interesting story with Vastanvi, we need to empower these people some how.
